Amazing Aussie Bastards

New or Used: 4 copies from $18.00
Amazing bastard (colloquial), n: a bloke who does stuff that other bastards wouldn't try in a month of Sundays. We've all met them, or at least read about them - men who drive faster, climb higher, build and invent and triumph over impossible odds. Journalist Lawrence Money has assembled a collection of Amazing Aussie Bastards who truly stand out from the crowd. Immune to critics and disbelievers, undaunted by illness or financial setback, they have done what writer Somerset Maugham so admired - 'moulded life to their own liking'. From Prince Leonard of Hutt, the former WA farmer who created Australia's only independent state, to bullet-proof polar explorer Tim Jarvis and gallant Aboriginal warrior William Cooper, this is a book that celebrates stellar Aussie male achievement. What's their secret, these Amazing Bastards? What makes them tick? Can we be like them? The answer lies within these pages.
